What is content marketing and search engine optimization?

The popularity of “content marketing” makes it seem as if a new cure-all strategy was found to engage customers, increase brand awareness, and acquire leads. The reality is that influential companies have been using content marketing for over 100 years.

In fact, manufacturer of agricultural machinery John Deere was building trust with their audience back in 1895 when it started publishing The Furrow magazine; still in circulation.

Customers are asking: “Why should I visit that Web site?”

Our editors at SocialShelfspace.com understand that valuable content is the precise way to engage prospects and customers. If your content is not relevant to your intended audience and doesn’t have a clear call to action, your effort is wasted and will have no purpose in your marketing plan.

Quality content in your brand’s voice is extremely important and should be at the top of your marketing strategy. And by content, we are not only referring to articles on your website but also relevant photos, videos, infographics, and podcasts. Don’t forget social media platforms and communities like Twitter, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Reddit, even TikTok.
